It’s no secret that technology is rapidly changing how legal information is accessed. We are witnessing fundamental changes to the value of traditional print collections and an explosion of digital legal resources. The Law Society of Saskatchewan Library is at the leading edge of these changes and dedicated to providing Law Society members with needed resources in convenient digital formats. Over the past two years, the Law Society Library has drastically increased coverage of Saskatchewan case law on CanLII back to 1905.
The Law Society Library has also laboured to provide members with a substantial collection of authoritative legal ebooks and online loose-leafs. We are thrilled to announce that the Law Society is now able to provide lawyers in the province with desktop access to almost 200 ebooks and online loose-leafs from Irwin Law, Emond Publishing, and WestlawNext. These are conveniently available at your fingertips on your desktop, laptop, or mobile devices. All lawyers, regardless of location or firm size, have the same great access!
The Irwin Law Ebrary provides the popular Essentials of Canadian Law series. Emond Publications provides the Working with the Law and Casebook Collection. WestlawNext provides a number of popular loose-leaf titles like Ewaschuk on Criminal Pleading and Practice.
